A large majority of a home’s heat is lost through poorly insulated windows in the winter. That is, your home’s warm air escapes through the panes of your windows, and the cold air seeps through. This can result in drafty rooms despite you cranking up the heat.
As the winter season has continued its frigid ways, you might have noticed your energy bills spiking. While unfortunate, this is an absolutely normal and expected response to the coldest times of the year. After all, when the weather drops, you must crank up that thermostat so you don’t have to wear your ski gear inside your house.
Fortunately, we have come a long way from having to choose between being comfortable and receiving those low energy bills. If you are ready to enjoy a comfortable house and reduce your energy bills over time, then you are in the right place. Read on to learn more about how you can cut energy costs and improve insulation at your windows with the best shades for insulation from Hunter Douglas.
Offering year-round comfort with its energy-efficient cellular construction, Duette® Cellular Shades from Hunter Douglas are one of the best shades for insulation. Their cellular construction traps air right at your windows in a discreet layer of honeycomb-shaped cells that work to prevent air leakage and increase your home’s natural comfort levels.
Once installed, since your home will be properly insulated, drafty rooms in the winter and sweltering rooms in the summer will become obsolete. Thanks to this, these shades can help reduce your home’s energy bills over time. Duette® Cellular Shades also filter light beautifully throughout your home and come in a variety of gorgeous cuts and colors for you to choose from.
